Students in Need - Drake Hotel Fire

In the early hours of Christmas morning, a fire broke out at the Drake Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. The hotel was serving as temporary housing for homeless and highly mobile families. The fire displaced more than 200 people.

Among those people are two third grade students who attend school at KIPP North Star Primary in Minneapolis. Devonta and Alexzandria are incredible, joyful, bright, hard working students, whose families lost not only their residence but many of their possessions on Christmas Day.  

Both students and their families were unharmed in the fire. Within the next 10 days, KIPP North Star Primary would like to raise $1,000 to help these two families get back on their feet and ensure they can meet the basic needs of themselves and their students (clothes, school supplies etc.)

Any and all help and support is appreciated.
